Ashley Bathgate, cello
Starting: 07:30 PM
Ashley Bathgate has been described as an eloquent new music interpreter (The New York Times) and a glorious cellist (The Washington Post) who combines bittersweet lyricism along with ferocious chops (New York Magazine). Bach Unwound features the performance of a six-movement suite for solo cello based on movements from Bachs original cello suites, commissioned by Bathgate and written by composer-collective Sleeping Giant.
You are invited to stay after the show for a post-concert discussion between Bathgate and Angel Gil-Ordóñez, the conductor and Music Director of PostClassical Ensemble.
- In addition to her solo work, Bathgate is a member of the internationally acclaimed sextet Bang on a Can All-Stars, the chamber music group HOWL, the duo TwoSense with pianist Lisa Moore, and percussive quintet Bonjour.
- Bathgate was the unprecedented two-time winner of the Lois Lyman Concerto Competition, performing the Saint-Saens and Schumann Cello Concertos with the orchestra at Troy Savings Bank Music Hall.
